Bioflavonoids, also known as flavonoids, are a group of plant-derived compounds that can be found in certain fruits and vegetables and other popular foods such as dark chocolate and red wine.
Citrus bioflavonoids, derived from citrus fruits, contain flavonoids in high concentrations and are powerful antioxidants that work in symbiosis with vitamins to neutralize free radicals in the body.
These potent antioxidants may also help your body fight off allergies and viruses. But bioflavonoids are much more than just toxin-busting antioxidants; they have been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory, anti-thrombogenic, anti-diabetic, anti-cancer and neuroprotective properties.
Let’s take a look in more detail exactly how beneficial citrus bioflavonoids are and why we love them so much!
Top benefits of citrus bioflavonoids
Although research into bioflavonoids is still in the early stages, scientists are discovering more and more amazing benefits that these natural compounds have to offer:
There are tons of studies to prove the antioxidant benefits of bioflavonoids. In one overview, researchers explain that flavonoids interfere with the enzymes that create free radicals, deactivate ‘bad’ molecules before they cause damage to cells, and increase your body’s antioxidant defenses.
Free radicals are agents of destruction! They break down your cells from the inside out. This can cause premature aging and inflammation-related conditions. With bioflavonoids hindering the production of free radicals and clearing them out the body, your body is able to repair and heal itself, and slow down the aging process!
The antioxidant effects of bioflavonoids have shown to be effective against allergic conditions such as atopic dermatitis, asthma, and rhinitis.
Free radicals cause oxidative stress, which is where toxins in the body begin to destroy healthy cells and tissues. Allergic reactions are often associated with excess oxidative stress on the body. As we mentioned, the antioxidants in bioflavonoids destroy free radicals in the body, which, as a result, reduce oxidative stress. This helps to reduce pain and inflammation in the body, as well as leading to fewer allergic reactions.
In one review, research shows that various flavonoids reduce inflammatory responses that contribute to the development of asthma. This research also concludes that the anti-allergic, immune-modulating, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of flavonoids may be effective dietary nutrients for the prevention and treatment of allergic diseases.
Coronary artery disease is another health concern linked to oxidative stress and inflammation. According to a manuscript written for the National Institute of Health, bioflavonoids “reduce mortality” caused by cardiovascular diseases. This means that the antioxidants present in bioflavonoids may protect your heart, veins, arteries and lower your risk of coronary heart disease death.
Further research also shows that bioflavonoids may reduce your risk of stroke by improving the blood flow to your brain. This, in turn, reduces the risk of a blocked artery which, if this happens, would deprive your brain of oxygen.
NATURAL BRAIN Booster
Oxidative stress also plays a key role in the development of certain neurological conditions, such as Alzheimer’s, dementia, and Parkinson’s disease. As we know, bioflavonoids help massively to reduce oxidative stress throughout the body. This means that the symptoms of these neurological problems are significantly reduced.
One article written for the European Journal of Epidemiology indicates that bioflavonoids can reduce the risk of dementia. Other studies also point out that reducing the impact of oxidative stress on the body protects the nervous system from damage and that by increasing the number of antioxidants present in the body, you can help the brain repair itself.
For optimal heart health, brain health and a complete body clear out we recommend adding bioflavonoids to your daily diet.
Why we use citrus bioflavonoids in our 100% natural tooth powder
Bioflavonoids significantly enhance the absorption of vitamin C. As we know, vitamin C is a vital nutrient for teeth and gum health. In fact, vitamin C is absolutely essential for cell growth and repair of all body tissues. All creatures need it! Check out our blog, “Vitamin C – you can’t live without it” for more vitamin C factual nuggets.
Vitamin C is absolutely critical when it comes to gum disease prevention, so we wanted to maximize its effectiveness by adding these powerful vitamin C synthesizing citrus-bioflavonoids to our all-natural tooth and gum powder.
Because bioflavonoids hugely influence your body’s ability to absorb and utilize vitamin C, by combining them together in our herbal little formula, your teeth and gums receive way more powerful plaque reducing, bacteria busting, cell renewing, collagen-producing benefits.
And it’s not just vitamin C combined with bioflavonoids that makes Good-Gums tooth and gum powder so effective; we also use baking powder, cranberry, myrrh, peppermint, French grey sea salt and cinnamon, which all work in perfect synergy to get your oral health back to their natural, healthy and optimal state.
